I just have to write a post about this small tip that I noticed on Adobe’s forum: https://forums.adobe.com/ideas/10106 Thanks to Jen!
(Btw, if you haven’t voted that idea… what are you waiting for!? Hit the “vote up” button!)
In Workspace, you can add “text” panel to your project and write detailed descriptions for different tables and visualizations. Have used a lot this “text” panel. However, this way text is always on a different “module” and sometimes it might be difficult to align these text panels to the data panels etc. Thanks to Jen, I realized that you can edit freeform table’s description and this way you get same kind of text panel injected directly to the same freeform table. How did I have missed this feature?
Let’s take some screenshots and you’ll surely understand what I’m trying to explain:
- Right-click in the header of freeform table.
- Click “edit description” and write your data story or poem or whatever you wan to explain to CEO. 😉
See the difference (below) between description inside table vs. own text panel. Difference is huge, almost bigger than what I have ever seen. (Seems somebody is on a Saturday feeling and getting too excited about this? :D)
